List three pet peeves.
– Vacuum sweepers
– When flies buzz in your ear during naptime.
What makes you unique?
I’m not sure. I think my answer will sound boring and un-unique.
Would be your ideal birthday present, and why?
Tickets to Comic Con. It’s not too late. Gifts still accepted. Just kidding (but no really, it’s not too late to get tickets.)
Which way does the toilet paper roll go? Over or under?
Under. I had a co-worker who would follow me around switching the rolls to over. If I was mean, I would have followed her following me and switched them back to under.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful that I didn’t superglue anything important to anything important. Looking forward to making a nurse cap out of craft foam and sparkles.
Oh my glob! When I’m really angry, I cry, throw socks at my mirror, slam doors and scream into my pillow. Let’s not forget the talking through my teeth.
It’s terrible. I’m usually so disgusted with the theatrics that I cry some more. It’s all truly dramatic.
Sometimes I call my mom, who tells me to quit being a baby. Basically, “Suck it up Buttercup.” Then I watch something funny. Other times I’ll write something or listen to music. Taking photographs makes me feel less like throwing a tantrum. Seriously, if I drop the camera, I would be devastated. Then I’m back to square one with getting through the anger.
If none of that works, then it’s naptime.
I look so ticked off in this picture. The right shoes can make of break your day.
Is there “junk” in your life? What kind? How do you get rid
My junk consists of clothes, scrapbook supplies, empty picture frames and paper.
So every few weeks, I go through clothes to see if I can give anything to Goodwill. Sometimes I manage to give away household items and toys. Lucas tells Little Sister #2 that we are giving the toys to Little Suzy because she needs toys. Sometimes she is more willing to give toys away if she’s giving to someone with a name.
The empty picture frames need to be filled with pictures or have hardware put on the back. I need an extra hour in the day to get it all done.
Scrapbooking supplies have a way of getting out of hand. It would be fine if I never used them. Then it could all stay nice and neat in my closet. However, then none of my scrapbooks would ever get finished.
Do you think it is possible to heal on our own, or do we always need to reach out for the comfort of other people in order to fully heal?
During times of heartache, I have certainly attempted to heal on my own. The only people I liked were Ben & Jerry. Their Chunky Monkey ice cream got me through some rough times.
However, a person can only handle so much alone time. So I went to the gym. I took a yoga class. I went to my favorite coffee shop every Thursday for open mic night. Most of the time, I still felt alone but it was better than sitting at home where I was definitely alone and definitely lonely.
Healing is more internal. I’m not sure if anyone aside from a cardiologist can heal another heart . Maybe we can help each other heal by listening, sharing stories, laughing and communicating.
